Slave Master is the agent through which his slaves are empowered to express our highest good, contribute all of our gifts and embrace our destinies with faith and obedience that overrides fear of disappointment, fear of failure, fear of looking or feeling foolish, fear of what people think.
This slave has been slogging along his path for nearly forty years- what is new is that the path has revealed its name, "Slavery." The name the path has taken is new (and startling), but the longing, the searching, the bouts of frustration and depression, the temptation to give up, are not.
This slave has been a spiritual pilgrim for the last 30 years, going where he is led, down many paths, through many experiences, always feeling called, never feeling certain he had actually found what he was being called to.

 The Original Jim Crow
The phrase "Jim Crow" began as a character in a song, but by the late 1800s the words were used to describe a set of laws and customs that nullified amendments to the Constitution and oppressed fls.
John Thorp, a cultural anthropologist at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich., said a song sung by fls in the early 19th century poked fun at Jim Crow, a slave master, and a law that said fls couldn't dance by shuffling their feet.
The Jim Crow system, in existence from the 1830s to the 1950s, resulted in a "racial etiquette" that was meant to oppress fls and prevent them from gaining economic, social or political power.

 Pictures of Jim
Every illustrator must "see Jim" in order to draw him, and at the same time their various illustrations together say a lot about the way that American book-makers and book-buyers have imagined the African American slave.

Before the emancipation proclamation freed the slaves, before schooling was widespread, when people for the aforementioned reasons were exploited for their ignorance to the world around them.
I forgot to mention it before but it always bothers me that Jim is not introduced in the first scene that introduces every other character, I think that would establish his character earlier and make his friendship with Huck easier to understand because it wouldn’t come out of the blue.
The first line that Jim sings is, "I see the same stars through my window that you see through yours…but we’re worlds apart." I think that’s why Jim respects Huck’s friendship so much is because he knows that Huck shouldn’t be his friend, but that doesn’t matter to him.

 The Jim Dilemma
The author of The Jim Dilemma argues that Twain's novel, in the tradition of all great literature, is invaluable for transporting readers to a time, place, and conflict essential to understanding who we are today.
Jim, along with other fl characters in the book, demands a rethinking and a re-envisioning of the southern slave, for Huckleberry Finn, she contends, ultimately questions readers' notions of what freedom means and what it costs.
As she shows that Twain portrayed Jim as nobody's fool, she focuses her discussion on both sides of the Jim dilemma and unflinchingly defends the importance of keeping the book in the classroom.

 Edgeliving: Master Jim and slave marsha
So, when slave marsha uses these pronouns a bit too frequently, I caution her about the “I, We and Our Syndrome.” In contrast, avoiding these pronouns seems to help slave marsha keep her focus on who she is and what makes this relationship different, further supporting the M/s dynamic.
So far, I have only addressed the need for the slave to be careful with language, but in fact, the Master must be mindful of language as well — both the slave’s language and his or her own.
You cannot make a person into a Master or a slave if that is not who they are, if Master or slave is not their “I am.” It is a primary part of our journey to discover who we are and then to live that life.

He has perhaps dealt with these types of slaves as he had first hand experience of their lives and situation.
